1.) Paul MacLean let off a pretty bold statement after last night's 4-2 loss to the New York Rangers, stating that he thought his team played a pretty solid game of hockey save a few mental lapses.
"The last four, maybe five minutes of the second period ... and early in the third period, if you could take away those six minutes, we are pretty happy w...

The 2011-2012 regular season was a pure joy for the New York Rangers and their fans. The team was put in the spotlight from day one when they began the season in Europe, and then came HBO’s 24/7 followed by the Winter Classic, all while the Blueshirts were racking up the wins and ascending to the top of the Eastern Conference. As I discussed on this blog earlier in the week, the...
Dave Lozo at NHL.com says, after missing the playoffs last year because of a broken leg, having a healthy Ryan Callahan will be huge for the Rangers..."This is what you play 82 games for, is this time of year," Callahan said. "Last year was hard for me, missing the playoffs not being able to be part of it. I'm excited for it this year."Here's John Tortorella...

Coming into the series between the New York Rangers vs. Ottawa Senators, no one really knew what to expect except for what was on paper.
In Game 1 tonight at Madison Square Garden, the New York Rangers showed their fans and the league why they finished where they did in defeating the Ottawa Senators by a score of 4-2. For a Senators team that had dominated the Blueshirts at MSG...
Given the way that they played Game 1, the New York Rangers have every reason to come into tonight’s Game 2 with the Ottawa Senators in a very cocky manner.
However, that would not be this year’s team style. Throughout the regular season, the Blueshirts never let themselves get too high or too low and because of that attitude, it allowed them to stay focused on the task at hand...
